Shelby’s story really influenced me. Her situation was unique; she was diagnosed with heart problems at 8 years old and was forced to live in a hospital. She had a heart transplant in 2003 and even though got better for a while, she was diagnosed with cancer A couple years ago. All these things that Shelby went through and overcame, helped me realize that there are people who are going through more difficult times. It helped me realize how I should never take anything for granted. As a future healthcare provider it helped me be more compassionate and appreciate people’s stories. Also, when I’m faced with challenges it made me realize that I shouldn’t complain about it because there are others who have it worse than me.
